In Fall of 2013, Walker Library visitors used over 4.5 million sheets of paper. For the students it was hard to conceptualize how much paper that even is. So one student figured out that the amount of paper printed was equivalent to the collective works of Shakespeare printed 3600 times! Thus the reference to Hamlet.
100% of this installation was made out of reused paper from the library recycling bins. All materials will be recycled at the end of the exhibition. We hope the project will provide a moment of reflection for the students, faculty and administration. Think before you print!
